Client TestimonialsSubsea Service CompanyManaging Director: “We have been using Progressing recruitment consultants as our primary engineering recruitment provider for approximately 12 months. From the very beginning we have been impressed by the professionalism of Progressive as an organisation. We have always received the highest quality of candidates and we have continuously received excellent service through both good quality communications and constructive two way feedback. We have recommended Progressive to a number of other companies already and have no hesitation in continuing to do so.”CEOUK independent Oil Company: “The service that we have received from Progressive has been nothing but grade "A".

Candidate TestimonialsGeneral Manager Russian Operations• “Ever since I received the confirmation that I had successfully secured the role of General Manager for your client’s Russian operations Ive been keen to write to you and thank you for all of your efforts. As you well know my job search has been a long and painful exercise, lasting some 9 months but it became all the easier once I started dealing with you. Indeed I cant believe just how quick the process was. If you remember, I received the initial job notification, discussed the post with you in the morning and first thing the following day youd advised me that I was invited for a telephone conversation that lunch-time. Prior to the interview you offered me some useful interview tips and following my interview were eagerly awaiting my feedback as to how it went. As you well know it went very well and on next day you notified me as to my invitation for a second interview next week. What impressed me was the interest you showed in ensuring that all of the necessary arrangements had been made for my safe travel there. Following my interview we again spoke and I advised you of the good news that the position had been confirmed subject to confirmation of references. Here again you were very supportive in co-ordinating information on my professional referees to the client. At this stage I was expecting your involvement to have been concluded and was very surprised and pleased that you also helped during the post confirmation and employment contract development phases. But the icing on the cake was that even when the post had been confirmed Id a signed contract of employment you were still keen to ensure that my visa processing went smoothly and my travel arrangements to take up my post had been effectively arranged. Therefore all in all an very enjoyable process. Indeed if I had to go through such and exercise in the future I would hope that it would be you who was doing it with me. Again many thanks for all of your assistance. Id just wish wed met earlier”.Senior Reservoir Engineer• “Ive been in search for a job for about a 6 months - on and off – have worked with several recruitment agents throughout that time. I had found that submissions through oil and gas employers home sites was getting me no where, with most not acknowledging my applications. Progressive Oil & Gas was recommended by a friend, I made contact and within 3 days I was in an interview. I just have to tell that Progressive’s attitude and approach to the process is fundamentally different to what I have seen from other agents. Along with sharp technical capabilities, Progressive have always demonstrated a personal input, which I genuinely believe is an absolute must have skills have made the process very useful, painless and quite educational. All and a key to a continuous success. The interpersonal communication and networking the professional capabilities aside, Progressive were a pleasure to deal with as they clearly manage to create friendly, supportive and trustful relationships with people. I was also particularly impressed by the fact that I was interviewed over the phone by my agent, so that he could describe me to potential clients, rather than only forwarding my CV to applicable positions. Thanks Progressive!”
